THE STARS for December 2023 Horoscope

Welcome to December.

It’s palpable, the desire for a break, to pause, reflect, connect and let go.  With the Christmas holiday season looming large,  I have no doubt you’ll be reading this and thinking, it can’t come fast enough!!

The past couple of months have been rich with dynamic change and deep dives into matters requiring your intense focus. As a result, truths have risen to the surface sparking a desire to take off in a new direction. Whether or not you have acted on that, your heart is much clearer about what it wants to create. And the driving force is being able to work authentically in a way that is aligned with your values, purpose and being able to have impact.

For much of December, the Sun is transiting through knowledge seeking and adventurous Sagittarius. This inspires us to expand our minds by exploring new possibilities. However, whilst you’d love to get on with doing so, there’s some practical tasks to address first.

With Mercury embarking on his 3rd retrograde for the year from Dec 13 to Jan 2, much of the month is about revising, re-thinking and re-doing. Dec 13 to 23 is a powerful time to review your business and professional plans. So carve out time to conduct your year in review and do your 2024 strategic planning. Then from Dec 23 to Jan 2, reflect on what you’ve learned in 2023 and consider your professional development and travel plans for 2024.

As always with Mercury retrograde, allow extra time for travel, back up your tech and be extra conscious with your business communications.

The other area of focus for December is relationships – both professional and personal. With Venus visiting intense Scorpio from Dec 5 through to Dec 30, there is a window of opportunity to delve into any hidden partnership issues with open, honest and probing communication. If you feel something is not right, follow your instinct. It’s better to get to the truth of a matter so it can be resolved and the situation transformed. And It also allows you to get to know people you work with on a much deeper level to establish bonds which will support you in 2024. 

At the end of the month the mood lifts once Venus enters Sagittarius and Jupiter stations direct on December 31. This is the ideal vibe for celebrating so be sure to plan to get together with friends and family or treat yourself to something special to acknowledge the year that has been!!!

The New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13 may well be that lift of energy you need to get to the end of the year. It invites you to welcome in new possibilities for the year ahead and contemplate what brings you joy, pleasure and meaning in life. Just be mindful of making choices that please you versus any temptation to do things to keep up appearances!

The Full Moon in Cancer on December 27 is all about home and family. This is a time of year when you park work commitments and focus on what nurtures you and who/what you want to nurture. Jupiter is making a fortuitous connection to this lunation which can help increase opportunity to get the balance right between work and family over the coming year. And if you have been hiding your skills or business ideas, this is the ideal time to push yourself outside of your comfort zone and put them into the world. Things that are launched at this time have the opportunity to expand significantly into 2024.
